Denver Restaurant Week just posted the menus of the almost 300 restaurants participating in this year's Denver Restaurant Week, which begins February 25 and runs for two weeks. We're running a DRW contest for the best tips on how to get the most out of this annual eating orgy -- whether you're a diner or a restaurant employee -- and readers have served up some great hints.

This from Gad, for example.

Simple. For both sides - just act like a normal, civilized, calm human being. Don't be an asshole, don't think you're more entitled than anyone else, and remember that you are just eating/enjoying/getting paid to be serving a meal, not facing the end of the world as we know it if something is wrong that can be easily fixed with a little patience and politeness.

Read all the tips and offer your own here. Happy eating!


Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
